Can you believe Christmas is only a week away? Are you ready? Have you finished your shopping? Your wrapping? Your meal planning??
Last year we spent the holiday in Key West. My son was deployed, and in an effort to change things up, we went away over the holidays. It was so stress free! We took the kids’ gifts with us, and decorated our hotel room for Christmas. Then enjoyed the sunshine on a day when we are normally freezing, haha!
This year, I’ve got all my kids coming home. It’s funny when you enter a new phase in life, and learn to appreciate small things. Like, requests from the kids for specific meals and snacks while they are home for the holidays.
